Matcha Smoothie Bowl Recipe

According to Health.com, matcha green tea “has been shown in research to boost metabolism, and slow or halt the growth of cancer cells.” It’s also packed with nutrients and a clean source of energy. Unlike coffee, the caffeine in matcha creates an “alert calm”… you basically don’t get the jitters or the crash.

What are other added benefits of matcha? 

1. Helps regulate blood sugar

2. Offers partially fermented or fully fermented tea leaves which is great for gut health

3. It helps reduce your cortisol levels, which helps relieve inflammation and bloat

When using Matcha, a little goes a long way. 1 TSP for every cup of liquid is the recommendation. Also, it’s something that you should enjoy in moderation — like all things in life, too much of a good thing is still too much.

What is the best type of Matcha to use?

You’ll want to find high quality, organic matcha.  This one is my favorite and can be ordered from Amazon:

 

What does Mathca taste like? 

A good matcha should have vegetal taste. Personally, I find it to be full bodied and earthy. But, don’t worry, if you don’t like it’s natural taste, you can sweeten it.

Ok, now for the Matcha Smoothie Bowl recipe!

Ingredients:

4oz Water
4oz Almond Milk
1 banana
1 Scoop Vegan Vanilla Protein Powder
1 tsp Matcha Powder
1 TBSP Organic Agave Nectar (optional)

Toppings:

I used 1 cup of honey dew melon, 2 TBSP shredded coconut, and 1 TBSP Chia Seeds and Flax Seeds. But, feel free to use any toppings you’d like. Strawberries, sliced almonds, and dark chocolate chips would be heavenly, too!

In a blender, combine water, almond milk, banana, protein, matcha, agave (optional), and a handful of ice. Pulse until smooth.

 Pour contents of blender into a bowl and top with fruit, seeds, nuts, or treats of choice. ENJOY! xoxo

    I like that it helps regulate blood sugar levels. I have hypoglycemia so that’s something I’m always aware of.
